From Unprofessional Attorney to Shapiro Law Firm
I had a very emotional custody/support situation with my ex-wife of 9 years. At the time I was working with another attorney who turned out to be very unprofessional. I began working with Anna Shapiro and the difference was night and day. Anna and her team were very courteous, understood the emotional situation, and handled the case with the utmost integrity and professionalism. The team at Shapiro Law Group told me upfront the expected outcomes and gave me a realistic estimate of costs. They communicated with me every step of the way and turned a horrible situation into one that was rectified quickly. I recommend Shapiro Law Group to all my friends and family when the legal need arises.
Hostile Child Custody Case
I can't thank Anna Shapiro enough for her excellent representation of my niece in a hostile child custody case. She is an exceptional lawyer and a staunch defender of her client's rights. On the Friday of the long weekend in January, my niece's ex filed for sole custody of their child and issued the summons to appear in court the following Thursday. This was unexpected and my niece had no legal representation. Needless to say, we were distraught. On Saturday morning, we began our search for an attorney. Anna Shapiro answered our call within an hour. Her words to me were "You sound like you need help." Anna graciously met with us on the Monday holiday and after speaking with her, my niece and I felt confident in having her represent us. She understood our needs, was diligent in getting the work done on time, and was a true professional in the court room. We won our case due to Anna's outstanding work! She saved my niece from the heartache of losing her child. For that we are forever grateful. I highly recommend Anna Shapiro and her staff to anyone needing legal assistance.
